    Wow! I still have my helmet from when I started riding and got my own :) I wouldn't use it though. I also don't recommend headbutting the ground! :P He looks like a great horse and you look like you are having a lot of fun.

    I wish I could find a picture of me and Smokey. He was the first horse I ever rode by myself/ not on a trail ride. I love him so much but he was such a cranky sour pony. In the picture I look petrified and miserable I replaced that face now with my serious face haha.

    I'd like to know where these supposed 'studies' have been published. If they have ANY validity at all, they should have been published in a peer reviewed, accredited veterinary journal.

    I'd also like to know how many animals were in the study group, their ages, breeds, and the length of the study. Also, how many animals were in the control group? Because every TRUE scientific study needs a control group in order to compare to the animals in the study.

    One more thought and then I'm out; if these supposed findings are true, then Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is far too fat to be riding, and Prince Charles needs to keep his huge carcass off those delicate polo ponies.

    Well, you asked for it.
    My pony Dolly that I sold myself when I was 7 (gpa helped me and then we told my mom afterwards). I'm the one practicing horse safety, wearing a life jacket....I did ask my grandma awhile back if she knew why I had it on - apparently I had been "swimming" in the stock tank.

    On the weight topic, I would like to see those studies as well. While not plus sized now, I have been. I can say with conviction that when I was 200 lbs I was a better rider and easier on a horse than a lot of thin riders I've seen in my day.

    My hubby is a stout 220 very muscular guy, his favorite ride at our place is a 14.2 bulldog cutting bred QH. That horse has zero trouble carrying my hubby and still moves like a cat on his feet.

    Old Pictures? OMG yes!!

    Ok here are a couple I dug up!

    This is me and a QH named Journey when I was probably 10 or 11 (I'm 26 now)


    This is me and Flash, who was my absolutely favorite horse when I was young. I might be 12 in this picture or 13.


    Me and my first horse Phoenix when I was 16 at our first show together


    And me and Luke, the first horse I ever cantered, and the first horse I ever showed. This was my first show ever, Intro dressage when I was 8. We placed 4th, I still have that ribbon!


    This is Bo, I know Im not in the pic, but I found this, and he was one of my favorite horses ever! I was one of the only people who could actually ride him well. Unfortunately he had reoccurring lameness issues from the time my old trainer got him. And even though she said she sold him to a good home, I fear he ended up at auction...

    Actually my parents were big into slides, so I have those little negative looking slides. Hmmmm, I will go digging around.

    waresbear, it's pretty easy to have slides scanned. You can even buy a scanner to do it at home for very little money.
